Province of Ulster




During the early 17th century, the first Bradshaw families came to Ulster and settled in the newly created estates of counties Antrim, Armagh, Cavan, Down and Monaghan. Some came through the invitation of land owners, others through marriage arrangements and as soldiers who remained after Cromwell's Irish campaign ended.
